Jorge was our waiter and did a great job with our table. He surprised us with an anniversary Ice Cream treat. This was our second time there and enjoyed our meal very much. Thanks again everyone.
Great restaurant that treats customers like family. The food, from steaks, seafood, and Italian favorites are amazing every time. The staff and service is always on point. Everyone works great together as a team. One of the best restaurants around!
Outstanding service and meal!! Fantastic on every level, the greeting, our waiter, the presentation and the food !!
First time there and will definitely make this a regular spot. Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Food was phenomenal. Wine list not over the top expensive. Probably the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had. Well done and see you again soon.
Great food and service. We had a steak that was cooked to perfection and salad and sides were delicious. I highly recommend Rare as a special place to visit. Be prepared to pay a premium for this amazing restaurant.
We always have a fine experience when dining at Rare.
Never disappoints the food the service helping date night to be awesome
Staff was very professional and attentive. Food came out great and met expectations. Prices were fair.
Amazing as always
excellent food and service. i will return with friends.
A wonderful night with great food!!! Thank you for making our anniversary a special night.
The food was terrific!!! We got the crab cake for an appetizer, the rib chop for two for dinner, and the homemade banana pudding for dessert..the crab cake was phenomenal and littered with chunks of actual crab. The meat for dinner was soft and cooked to perfection. For dessert the banana pudding was filled with banana, nila wafers, and flavor.
Always a great place to dine anytime during the week. Great quality meat and fish and well prepared.
I thought the food quality was not as good as in the past. My dish was overcooked. The waiter missed the entree for one person and he ended up getting his dish later. The service was off somewhat..not what I expected. The waiter was pleasant in any event. Thank you,
It is always very good.
This is the place to go for good steaks! Cooked to perfection! On a Saturday night it's very noisy and crowded. Good food and good wine!
The wait staff was very attentive. The food was delicious and the entire table left very full and happy!
Its a great to eat. The staff are excellent. Always enjoyable.
Always a perfect go to for steak. Warm and friend Matre d. He always finds a place for you.
What a great hidden gem! Excellent food and service!
Dinner was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent and we could not have asked for a better dinner. Highly recommend!!
Great Food ,Great Service, Worth The price !!! Highly recommended
This is the first time we’ve eaten at Rare. One of the things that drew us there was it’s “Best Steakhouse in NJ” accolade. From the outside, it’s nicely appointed and in a good location with valet parking. Once inside, the bar area is quite nice but the dining area is a bit like a refurbished pizzeria with uncomfortable, lightweight wood chairs. The atmosphere ok but very loud.
Our waiter showed us the different steaks being offered and we all chose the rib eye. The rib eye steak displayed and the ribeye steak presented for consumption were 2 very different steaks. The steaks displayed were truly steakhouse quality but the steaks we were given were much lesser quality, much thinner and over cooked. I had asked for medium rare and got well as did most of the table. I wished I had taken pictures of the display cart versus what I received.
With this said, they were quick to take my steak and provide me a new one that was cooked more to my liking but still, the steak was less than an inch thick and still not medium rare (more medium).
Apart from the steaks, the service was good, the drinks were fantastic, the appetizers were solid, and the sides were good. As a restaurant, Rare is good but as a steakhouse, not so much. The cost does not match the quality.
I was surprised that the servers were not wearing masks and the tables were close to each other. The restaurant was packed. I was personally conflicted with the servers leaning in to hear us because the noise level. The food was very good. I was surprised that when I looked at the menu online on open table it said 10 oz filet mignon was $38 but on the menu at the restaurant it was $50. That was substantial. Maybe it was because it was Saturday night or maybe the prices went up. The meat was amazing, my friend had swordfish and said it was also delicious. It was my husbands second time there and second time had a great meal.
Had a really good meal here. Steaks were all done perfectly and had a great taste. A little costly with all the add ons but still a pretty good value. I had a 16oz prime sirloin that was very tasty and done right. Crawfish mac and cheese appetizer was really good. Party of 6 and everyone was happy with their food. Service was attentive and friendly. Will recommend and return. Only issue is the parking lot is valet only. Some street parking available.
They always get it right!
The food is excellent. Oysters were over the top and steaks are great... service is friendly and excellent. Always a great meal
Beautiful steakhouse with great food low noise and a wonderful overall environment.
Food and service was fantastic. Not my first time there, but definitely a treat. The vodka sauce is very yummy. Chocolate chip cookie skillet delicious also!
Great food and atmosphere
Dinner was delicious! Steaks cooked perfect. Haven’t been in awhile and it did not disappoint!
Everyone was polite…
Went here for our anniversary and was seated immediately. Our table however was very close to another table where I literally bumped elbows with the person next/behind us. I asked to be moved and we were accommodated.
Food was very good. Steak was cooked perfectly. The server de-boned our fish table side which was great.
As always food was delicious and service attentive and impeccable.,
Food was fantastic and service was very good as well. I feel like the prices have gone up dramatically but at least you know you are getting a great meal.
The food is top quality, the service is the best, and the ambiance is understated elegance.
This is the best place to dine! I took my team here and they all loved the experience.
